David has to wait for ranbir/ Working with salman in remake of a Telugu hit Kick

David Dhawan was very keen to work with Ranbir Kapoor like many filmmakers in B-Town but it looks it will be a long wait.  David is in talks with Studio 18 to remake Sai Paranjape’s cult comedy Chashme Buddoor (1981). And he wanted the Kapoor kid to play the character Farooque Shaikh’s character from the original. David felt he would match the character’s sensibilities and innocence.  A source says, “David made him his mind to cast Ranbir after watching Ranbir’s performance in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. David then got in touch with Ranbir and met him. David told him about his remake idea and told him about the changes he would make in his version.

Ranbir who has seen the original, told the director that he’d loved the film but he didn’t want to be part of this remake. He doesn’t want to be part of any remakes.” David was disappointed about being turned down and has now started a hunt for another actor.  A source close to Studio 18 says, “They indeed have the remaking rights of Chashme Buddoor and they have had them for a good two years now. Initially, they were planning to make it with Onir but somehow, things never worked out.

Now David is one of the directors they have signed and they are constantly bouncing off ideas with him. Chashme Buddoor was also one of the ideas told and things aren’t confirmed as yet as they are looking for any other story idea that might excite them.” Currently, he is working on the remake of a Telugu hit Kick, starring Salman Khan for producer Sajid Nadiadwala. It will go on the floor in April next year

  1. Its a good thing Ranbir turned down Dhawan….the latter is still stuck in the 90’s imo 🙂

    • Agree, David is very inconsistent and most of his work in this decade is not up to standards excluding Partner (jodi no 1 was good in his last installments)

  2. even partner was half-baked. but it worked imo because of Govinda-Salman jodi and some gr8 music…and katrina? 😉

  3. Latest news say even Salman has refused to work with David ..

  5. OR – has Salman seen sense at last after a gem like LD
